was responsible for the attack in benghazi? >> aqim played a role, the discussions are under way about how aqim members interacted with others and those are questions better left to a closed session. >> we'll try to arrange that at an appropriate period of time. on that same point you acknowledge that u.s.-africa command is coordinating with ecowas on planning for an intervention in the north. i guess that should be said, a potential intervention in the north. is that correct? >> it's correct to say that the intervention is not planning phases at this point. the intervention would be led by the maliian armed forces with support from the international military force. there is no construct or intention of having a u.s. boots on the ground type of support to that intervention but at this point we're providing planning support exclusively and we'll look at opportunities to provide support to those partners with whom we can engage. >> your statement said the mission will have kuhl objectives of establishing maliian sovereignty and confronting al qaeda. do you think the people you're training will be

objected because of the benghazi situation. you'll recall there was an attack on the consulate on september 11th. initially the administration said it was because of an protest of an anti-islam film that got out of hand. that's what susan rice said five days after the attack. it turns out it was a pre-planned terrorist attack. so a lot of criticism over what she said immediately after the attack and basically republicans use that had to sink the prospect of her nomination. >> host: is it unusual since she wasn't formally nominated for her to be the subject of floor speeches and committee hearings and her nomination being talked about so heavily? guest: it's happened before but not like it's happening right now. susan rice's nomination was basically sht down before she was nominated and we have a similar situation. talk of chuck hagel might be nominated. well, he has a lot of critics over in the senate too particularly among the republicans and they appear to have shot down his nomination. now it's considered unlikely. so he got preemptive nomination fights. and i think that's relatively new

inchbored inch bureau after christmas. >> our ambassador who died in benghazi tragically was communicating with you. he was communicating information to you. it's a great loss that he's not with us. what was he able to tell you? >> he was purchase furnishing us information that he was able to extract from bits and pieces that was scattered all over the offices, and as he gathered this information he would make it a point to get a hold of one of us in the organization of the families that have stuck together, and we would relay that information on. possibly what we were looking for was who else was involved in the downing of pan am 103, was assad, the iranian government? we know that they at one time were very much involved, but to what degree we can't tell you, we don't know and i don't think i want to speculate. jaime: well, stan, the thing is, the lone bomber got a hero's welcome when he returned, and he's now died. do you still believe that there were other people responsible? >> well i think that they provided -- they provided information as if they were to cooperate toward the bombing

in benghazi. it was involved in attacks and planned attacks in europe. a lot of people forget they tried, actually in the 1990s to fly a plane in the eiffel tower much like what happened in new york on 9/11. so it's a very, virulent group that certainly threatens us and our allies. jenna: your expertise on this, peter, what do you think about our military intervention? we'll explain what that means in a moment. what do you think about us getting involved here? is this a good decision now with the tiling? what your thoughts? >> we need to recognize the threat and we need to prepare to do something but we need to really prepare the terrain. i'm very concerned that we're rushing into something that's very half-baked. the african force that is talked about is a little over 3300 men. which is a laughable amount when you're talking about an area the size of texas. it is not a serious force. so they need our help. they need some training but they're not adequate. so until there's really commitment to put a force in there, that can actually do something, we run the risk of jumping into something
